Ruff Ruff! My name is Bruno
|Breed:||Pit Bull Terrier Mix||Color:||Brown/Chocolate - With White||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Meet Bruno! He is a 4-5 year old pit bull mixed with a lot of something else, maybe lab, and he is a wonderful dog!! He is great with people and loves to play with other dogs. We think that he would be good with children also but he has not been around them. He loves to have his belly scratched and loves to play tug and fetch. He is house trained and crate trained. He can sit on command and willingly goes in his crate most of the time without resistance. He will also do anything for treats. He is very trainable and smart.
Bruno is extremely loving and cuddly, but doesn't mind hanging out in his crate either. He does not like to share his meals, but that's very understandable considering that he was a stray who had to compete with others for food. Bruno is not an excitable dog and will probably never be the type to jump on you when you when you walk in the door. He does, however, REALLY LOVE to cuddle and snuggle up with you. All in all this is a great dog who is just a big ole hunk of love. So if you are interested in meeting him please fill out an adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adoption_application.html. Or email email@example.com. Thanks.

Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 300 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee is $125. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
